Things I don't like about phonescoop.

1. I don't like people who bash the service providers, or the phone manufacturers with bad reviews because of a defective phone or an area that gets no coverage. My grandpa worked for sprint for 30 years as a phone engineer and his phone (Kyocera), as well as phones from Verizon (Nokia) , T-mobile (Motorola and Samsung), and AT&T (another Nokia) would NOT get signal whatsoever in that basement. Please don't take a situation like that and post a user review that says T-mobile SUCKS and Samsung SUCKS it wont even get a signal in my grandpas basement. When the TRUTH is that NO phone would work in that basement.

2.I don't like people who give phones bad reviews because it does not have every feature. I remember someone giving 4 out of 5. The ...

V3 Screen ? (still)

I can't seem to find anyone that knows if the Cingular branded v3 has a 260k internal screen or a 65k internal screen. Everywhere in print at Cingular it say 65k, but everywhere else (including hellomoto) it says 260k. What gives?

HELP. Can someone tell me how to set up my phone where I receive the "Voicemail Message Notificatio" icon which is the little envelope. Mine doesn't show up even when I have voice mail messages. I have tried to set it up through voicemail set up, going through notification (Option 5) which then asks me to hit #1 button which I do and then I get a messsage that says I have entered an invalid key. Help.

LG VX8000 Review

Hi Rich, was wondering what your thoughts are on adding a user review section for the LG VX8000? I realize the phone isn't out yet, however, there are people that own the phone and I beleive their opinions would help others in the purchasing decision.

Thank you for your time in reading this post, hope you have a great day.

Search question...

Hello all,

Got a question for you...

I am always searching for phones on here from various carriers. I use the phone finder feature.

One limitation I frequently run into is that there are not enough results from a search. I mean ... I'll end up with 20 results, but certain vendors have many more phones these days... And I cannot do a "View page 2" or anything... Is it possible to bump the number of results up to 30? or 50 ? Or "select your own number"?

New phone

There's a "phone" which ATT/Cingular sells on prepaid service only that's a lot like the T-mobile Sidekick. It's called the OGO, and I have no idea who manufactures it. It offers no voice support but does have unlimited text, IM, and email.

Could you find out the specs on it? This site is one of the few outside phone information sources that my company allows through the firewalls =o). I know currently it's only available from Cingular Blue stores or online.

New Forum Ideao

I think we need a forum for the ongoing GSM-CDMA debate. This might keep it out of other forums.
It would get enough posts.

Kyocera K-9 Virgin Mobile Phones

Is there way to change the configuration of these phones so that they can be used with any service providers as opposed to only VIRGIN MOBILE??? Something like replacing the SIM card. Do these phones have them???

Unlocking a Motorola V600

I would like to know if anyone knows how to unlock the AT&T code in a V600 so it can be used on the Cingular system, with a Cingular SIM card. I have a Blackberry on Cingular and want the freedom of using my previous AT&T phone when I don't need to haul the Blackberry around. Otherwise it's an expensive paperweight

my outlook will not send me calendar reminders

ever since i got the blackberry, when i try to send a reminder i get a message saying the following: There is a problem reading one or more of your reminders. Some reminders may not appear. Cannot locate recurrance information for this appointment" then another box pops up stating "Operation Failed"

After searching under Google groups, I noticed that we are not alone in this problem occurance. There are several threads asking for a solution to this issue.

Can you suggest a solution?

I am so frustrated. They occasionally show up, but usually way past when I needed the reminder.

Which settings may be wrong and require changing?

New Phone Finder features!

I'm pleased to announce that the Phone Finder here on Phone Scoop has just been enhanced with several much-requested features:

  • Feature Exclude. You can now choose "Exclude" for most features in the feature list, to find phones without that feature. People have been requesting this so they can search for phones without cameras. Now you can.

  • Feature Detail Searching. You can now search on camera resolution, high-speed data technology, and memory card type.

  • Compare checkboxes. Now you can use the Phone Finder to do a broad search, then check off the phones you like, and click "Compare" at the bottom to jump straight to a complete side-by-side comparison.

Also, the side-by-side Compare feat...
